Kershaw threw about 35 sliders

By: Torpedoman

and about another 35 curves tonight. He also mixed in about 20 fastballs.. in the about 90 or so pitches he made tonight. His location with the breaking pitches was filthy..  both sides of the black, hell he managed to even keep both Freeman and Markakis in the yard and off the bases.  what is so great about that pitch breakdown is that his velocity since the back problems and the arm problem is down a couple of mph.. so he has to. get more outs on offspeed stuff .. hence only 3 K's but lots of soft contact and ground balls. The only guy getting any wood tonight was that little leadoff kid.. an amazing young player.. probably RoY this season.
